Self-Stirring Lens-Shaped Coffee Mug for $12 + $2 S&H [AAA powered]

Lens-shaped coffee mugs are everywhere these days, but what if you want to take your coffee-lensing to the next level? How about a a self-stirring coffee-shaped lens-mug? It is currently on sale for $13 plus $2 flat shipping at Stacksocial. Don’t forget to use any coupons (eg new customer) or credits you may have. The self-stirring is not powered by your love of coffee, but by two AAA batteries.

This is listed as 11 ounces, so if you are buying coffee at coffee shops, it won’t match the standard 12/16/20/24 sizes. You can try to convince them to sell you the kids size (8 oz) if they have it 🙂 However, if the coffee shop has free refills (eg Starbucks Gold Rewards), then losing an extra ounce is no big deal. Then again, with some places, you don’t want to drink any more of their coffee, even with unlimited free refills 🙂

If you plan to use this regularly, this 4-pack of Eneloop AAA Pre-Charged NiMHs currently goes for $7.60 at Amazon. They are not Add-ON, so Prime members get them in 2~ days without the need to buy anything else. These AAA are 750 mAh minimum (800 mAh “type”), with up to 2100 recharges. They are also eligible for “Subscribe and Save” as well. Limit one set for each purchase option.

Speaking of Stacksocial, their Pay What You Want Photography Bundle continues. $1+ gets you two classes, while meeting/beating the average price of $12.84 gets you all nine items (seven classes, two assets (stock photos to be experimented upon for class learnings)). More Pay What You Want options at our previous post.

Did you know? Leica has Three Official Lens-Shaped Coffee Mugs for $30 to $35

Did you know that Leica has officially licensed lens-shaped coffee mugs, sold under their brand? They have multiple models even!

The iconic Noctilux-M 50 goes for $35 with free shipping at Amazon (Prime eligible; price is exactly $35, so non-Prime members get free shipping too) along with B&H Photo and Adorama.

Meanwhile, the Summarit-S70 homage lens-shaped coffee mug also goes for $35 with free shipping by Ace Photo thru Amazon (NOT Prime eligible; ships directly from “Ace Photo”). Adorama has the same price and it is in-stock but charges shipping. B&H Photo has free shipping but it’s a “Special Order” (ships 7-14 business days).

We are not done yet, there is also the iconic Leica RED dot coffee mug which goes for $30 with free shipping at B&H Photo but it’s a “Special Order” (ships 7-14 business days). Meanwhile Adorama has it in-stock but charges shipping ($5+ based on zipcode/etc). Adorama also offers it thru Amazon but the S&H fee is fixed at $9~, so you are better off buying directly from Adorama unless your lowest S&H fee is over $8.85.

Now that you’ve spent all your coffee money on the Leica coffee mugs, how about a deal on coffee to make up for it? 🙂 Amazon itself is offering 12-ounce Caribou Coffee Costa Rica (Bag, Light Roast, Ground) for $3.44 with a limit of four 12oz bags per customer at this price. This is an ADD-ON item, so you need a $25+ order to buy it.

UPDATE: there’s also this Melitta Cone Filter Coffeemaker 10 Cup going for $4.99 (limit 4 per customer). Also an ADD-On item. It includes a 10-cup glass carafe and a plastic coffee cone (takes #6 filters; filters not included but 100pk brown for $2 at Trader Joe). No AC power, this is pour-over and modular. Even if you don’t drink coffee, you can use this in “hipster coffee” stock photos 😉

Self-Stirring Lens-Shaped Coffee Mug for $13 w/free S&H

I suppose this falls squarely into the Dads and Grads gift season, it’s not just a Lens-Shaped Coffee Mug, BUT a Self-Stirring One! No, it does not use gravitational waves harvested from the soul of the universe, but two AAA batteries to power the self-stirring which is activated with a button on the side of this 11oz lens-shaped coffee mug going for $13 with free shipping with a limit of five per customer at Stacksocial. There is a short video demonstrating the stirring over there. Delivery estimate is two weeks from today.

PS: I have only used the non-powered ones, so I don’t know how well the stirring works on this one.

Lens-Shaped Coffee Mug for $10 [was $11]

And now to a lens of a different kind, a novelty gift with some semi-practical use, Groupon is offering this lens-shaped coffee mug for $10 (was $11) each, with a limit of five per customer. Free shipping with orders of $34.99 so you may want to add it to a future order if not planning to buy anything else now. Shipping is $4 for sub-$35 orders. The specs say this is 12oz but keep in mind, in general, most of the coffee cup listed measurements are usually fully full (which no one uses that way because you get spills all over).

Also of interest if you have any Groupon store credit or coupons or gift cards.
